This winning streak, plus the decline in play from the Pittsburgh Penguins, has given the B’s a very comfortable division and conference lead with just 13 games left on the docket – but don’t tell that to Torey Krug.
Things are going swimmingly for the Bruins, but Claude Julien is making sure his defensemen remain sharp and take nothing for granted.
Torey Krug broke Bobby Orr’s record for goals by a rookie defenseman in the Bruins’ 5-1 win over Carolina.
Krug talks about being scratched, as well as Carl Soderberg, Zdeno Chara, and more with Gresh and Zo.
Leading up to the trade deadline you hear all sorts of trade rumors scenarios. One name that wasn’t thrown around (that we know of) was Mr. Krug, but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t a trying time for he and his teammates in the locker room.
After an unspectacular trade deadline, Dave Goucher says the Bruins are going to have to stay healthy to make a Cup run this season.
Peter Chiarelli has now given coach Claude Julien eight defensemen to mix and match even without the injured Dennis Seidenberg and Adam McQuaid.
Torey Krug joined Andy Gresh and Bob Socci to discuss the state of the B’s coming out of the Olympic break.
Krug’s presence on the power play has been invaluable to making the Bruins a more threatening offensive club in 2013-14, and his overall contributions have landed him in the running for NHL’s rookie of the year honors.
Krug “just kind of hung around” while on vacation in Mexico and only recently started watching the Olympic games upon his return, adding, “It looks like a lot of fun and I’m looking forward to the game tomorrow.” He of course is not referring to Finland vs. Sweden
